Yes, registration is OPEN for classes for International Quilt Festival Houston 2018, including my four classes. I’ll recap my four classes (well, three full day classes and the Machine Quilting Forum). My first class, Birch Pond Season, is already covered here. Today, I’ll share about Collage the Garden, one of my newest classes and proving to be one of the most popular. I hope to see some of you in it!
This workshop is all about how I –and now YOU– can create imagery from a photograph to create your own fused, collaged art quilt. In Houston, this workshop is offered as a one-day class. I’ll provide photos to teach you how to use a photo to map out your shapes and values, then you will start (and maybe finish?) creating the pink water lily or the orange tiger lily. For this outing in Houston, you will be bringing and fusing up your own fabrics (or bring them pre-fused–I prefer Mistyfuse and will have it available in class–it has the lightest weight and softest hand of any of the fusibles). This is a no-sewing class, but we will talk about how to quilt your fused artwork when you get home.
You can see the supply list here.
Click on this link to sign up for Class 339 and spend Wednesday playing with me! Class ends at five–just in time for IQA member preview opening at 5 (and general public preview at 7).
In other venues, a guild can book this workshop over to two or three days to allow students to bring in their own photographs and begin work on their own artwork with Sarah to help guide them. The workshop can be booked in conjunction with Quilting the Garden: Thread-Coloring the Flower to create a three-to-five day workshop.
